Ankle sprain grades
- Grade 1 injuries a mild stretch of the ligaments with minimal pain and a fairly quick recovery time between 1 day to 2 weeks depending on capacity to recover.
- Grade 2 injuries are a more severe version of a Grade 1 injury, involving greater damage to the ligaments with anywhere from 2-6 weeks required for recovery.
- Grade 3 injuries involve the complete rupture of 1 or more ligaments. This results in swelling, bruising, and will leave the ankle chronically unstable.
